Spring Ulta Haul
Cait, didn’t you just post a haul already this week? Yes, yes I did. But did you know that there are birthday gifts at both? I didn’t see a reason not to stop and pick it up, so of course I did! And if a couple of other things fell into my bag, so be it, right?
Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in Blushing Bride
I don’t own a lot of fblushes, which is so strange to me considering the size and depth of my makeup collectioon. I was looking for a new blush, and this one was so aptly named Blushing Bride, it just had to come home wiht me. I already used up a full Amazonian Clay blush, so I knew I would like the formula. It’s a perfect just-blushing pink.
Tarte Sugar Rush Sugar Coat Velvet Liquid Lipstick in Sprinkle
I was interested in trying something from Tarte’s new lower-end line Sugar Crush, and this was the only thing that really called to me. The color is a little darker than I was expecting, but I still like it. It doesn’t scream spring, but I can save it for later months. As far as I can tell, the formula is the same as the normal Tarte liquid lipsticks, so if you like those, you’ll like this!
MAC Powder Kiss Lpstick in A Little Tamed
I totally let the MAC girl talk me into this. A matte lipstick that’s moisturizing? Sign me up. So far, I have been loving this. It wears a long time, like my other MAC lipsticks, but also doesn’t dry out my lips. Loving this!
Tarte Foundcealer in 16S Fair Light Sand (Gift with Purchase)
I was curious about trying this, so I’m excited that I can try it without the commitment. So far, I’m very impressed. The sample color isn’t perfect for me, but I like the formula a lot more than I thought I would. It is lighter coverage than I’m used to, but I have been loving the way that it sits on my skin. It does conceal all the imperfections, but isn’t anywhere near feeling heavy. I’m slowly being convinced on this one.
Lancome Cils Booster Mascara Base (Birthday Gift)
I had used this in the past, and I’m excited to keep using it! I find that it makes my mascara last longer, and that it also makes my lashes look great. Ulta typically doesn’t have the best birthday gifts, and I find that they are very hit and miss due to the fact that they change every couple months. I lucked out this time!
